Judging from our results on Thursday, Sammamish has really come to life. We caught a nice mix of fish, cutties, coho and kokanee with the majority being cutties in the 15-18 inch range. Didnt get out there until late so we fished about 4 hours mid day which is usually the slower time. Think the morning bite could be smokin hot.
Set ups that worked were Old Goats 1.8" fished with flasher or no flasher and no bait/scent, small Flashyfish spoon naked no flasher, no bait/scent and a small brass spinner with slow death hook, worm chunk and flasher. I have been using slow death hooks lately and really pleased with the results. Solid hookups and if you pinch the barb easy release.
I marked a hot spot but thats just a general area, fish could be anywhere. Thats where they were Thursday anyway.
Dropped lines back 125-150 and 35 down in roughly 80-90 fow. Speed appx 1.5mph
Think we could have caught more but fish #10 on bait came to the net and we were done. Rules is what they is. Kept 4 and C&R the rest.
If you are fishing Sammamish make sure you know the difference between a cuttie, kokanee, coho and chinook and what you can keep and what you cant. Just C&R if you arent sure. C&R is always good anyway but a couple for the barby is good too.
